Daredevil recap: season one, episode one – Into the Ring

15 April 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Netflix’s new zillion-dollar series has a terrific cast, a great line in New York noir and expert fight sequences – as if Scorsese had made The Avengers

If you wish that either Martin Scorsese had directed The Avengers or that The Wire was a little sillier, Marvel and Netflix have good news in the form of Daredevil, the new hour-long drama that, on Friday, dropped 13 episodes suitable for bingeing. The series is created by Drew Goddard, director of The Cabin in the Woods (which he in turn wrote with Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon), and its first episode is very good.

Daredevil has a typically silly radioactive Stan Lee origin story, which is the first thing we see: as a little boy, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox as an adult, Skylar Gaertner as a kid) pushes a man out of the way of a careering truck and ends up splashed in the »

Joss Whedon’s Star-Studded ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Premiere Is ‘A Little Surreal’

14 April 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The spectacle of Monday’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood was a heroic effort to match a movie of such epic proportions.

Hundreds of screaming fans lined Hollywood Boulevard just to catch a glimpse of stars like Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett JohanssonJeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr., who rolled onto the carpet Tony Stark-style, fashionably late in an Audi sports car complete with an “Avengers” license plate.

Ruffalo (who plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk) opened up about his character, confessing that sometimes when he watches himself, he thinks, “Do I really do that face? Do I really look like that?” In this “Avengers” follow-up, the big green monster has some tender moments, but Ruffalo commented that his role involves “mostly smashing, crashing and bashing.”

Elizabeth Olsen made a bold claim about her character, Scarlet Witch — who first appeared in the »

Take another look @ actor Thomas Kretschmann who plays Marvel Comics super-villain 'Baron Strucker', reportedly the co-creator of 'Ultron' (with 'Tony Stark')  in director Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

10 April 2015 3:53 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Not surprisingly, it turns out that comic book legend Stan Lee is also very excited to see Spidey swinging across the big screen with many of his other creations and more. Speaking with Comicbook.com at the Marvel Gillete event, Lee, who created the character in 1962 with artist Steve Ditko, was asked if he was happy to see Spider-Man at home in the McU, and he responded that it.s always great to see as many of these superheroes together. According to Lee: Of course, the more we can get them all together like the Avengers, it.s fun. And the public, they love those kinds of movies. And so do I. When the news broke that Sony and Marvel had worked out a deal to bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans were understandably excited.

Daredevil episode 1 viewing notes: Into The Ring

10 April 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's the first of our episode-by-episode annotations of Marvel's Daredevil series, released today on Netflix...

With the whole series of Daredevil now available on Netflix, the race is on to reach the ending before someone spoils it for you. But that presents us with a problem. How do we approach reviews? It's not much use speculating about the future of the series when it's available at a moment's notice, but watching the whole thing in one go for a single review is impractical for anyone with a day job and personal relationships to maintain – to say nothing of how difficult it is to critically appraise 12 hours of television if you don't savour the instalments properly.

That's why, instead of traditional reviews, we're trying something new. An episode-by-episode unpicking of the show, looking at its techniques, characters and use of the source material. Call them annotations, call them show notes, call »

Here's Why There's No 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Post-Credits Scene

8 April 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Surprise: There's no surprise coming! Instead, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" writer/director Joss Whedon just issued a public service announcement, warning fans not to sit through 10 minutes of credits expecting another surprise end scene, ala "Iron Man," the first "Avengers" film, etc. No more restaurant trips for our heroes.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly, "There will be a tag" scene after the credits start, but not a "post-post-credit scene." There's nothing coming at the very end, and it's "not a fake-out," Whedon told EW.

Why didn't they include a final scene this time? Whedon said they tried to come up with something to top or at least match the "Avengers" shawarma, but nothing felt right for what they were doing in "Age of Ultron" (which opens May 1). "We all came at it separately - we don't want to chase that," Whedon says. "That was a jewel and a weird little quirk. »

Stan Lee teases his Avengers: Age of Ultron cameo

31 March 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In life there are several things that are guaranteed: death, taxes and Stan Lee cameos in Marvel movies.

Over the weekend at Emerald City Comic-Con, the comic book and Marvel legend was asked by an audience member about which of his cameos has been his favourite – and he teases the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“My favourite is one I can’t tell you about, but I’ll give you a hint — don’t miss the new Avengers movie,” he told the audience.

“Almost every day, I get invited to do a cameo in some movie or another that has nothing to do with Marvel,” he added. “They just call me up, ‘hey, we’re doing a movie. Do you want to do a cameo?’ It’s kind of funny — I’ve become known as a cameo specialist.”

Some fans have theorised that Stan Lee is in fact playing popular Marvel Comics character The Watcher, »

Marvel Studios Countdown: Meet the Twins From 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

16 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

We may have met “the twins” in Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s post-credits bit, but we won’t find out how they fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe until Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is approaching, well, as fast as Quicksilver. Yes, he’s the showstopper from X-Men: Days of Future Past, but don’t get confused - the Quicksilver in the Avengers sequel is a completely different take bearing the same name (just like how multiple actors have played Superman, but not the same version of Superman). We’ll also get Scarlet Witch, an Avengers mainstay who has been the centerpiece of some of the biggest comic book storylines of all time.   Who created the twins and when was their first appearance? Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created...

13 March 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

With the release this weekend of both Disney’s live-action Cinderella and the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night, we’re finally out of the early-year movie doldrums. And as I’ve said many times, dear readers, it’s never too early to look forward to what’s coming out. In that spirit, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column takes another look at the first big movie of summer 2015, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. But the plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the real enemy and sets out to eradicate them from the Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce »

A few weeks ago, the stars of Avengers: Age of Ultron took to their respective Twitter pages to debut new character posters for this highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel, in theaters May 1. Today, the poster roll-out continues with the latest actors to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen as his sister Scarlet Witch.

Further to Marvel Studios filming certain sequences of "The Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", in Cape Town, South Africa, reports continue to surface that Marvel Comics' superhero 'T-Challa' aka 'Black Panther' (Chadwick Boseman) is introduced in the new film:

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" production hired 'extras' for a location shoot in Cape Town.

"Filming in South Africa provides the 'Avengers' an opportunity to seek out 'T'Challa' aka 'Black Panther'...

"...whose homeland of 'Wakanda' exports 'vibranium', a metal alloy coveted by 'Ultron'...

"...that was compounded with 'adamantium' to make Captain America's original triangular shield. 

"The disc-shaped shield currently used by Cap is made of pure vibranium..."

Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and illustrator-co-plotter Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics, 'Black Panther' debuted in "Fantastic Four" #52 (July 1966), as the first black superhero in mainstream comics.

12 landmark performance capture turns: From Ahmed Best to Andy Serkis

7 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.

Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.

Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.

Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.
